WHAT DOES SEALED UNIT MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Sealed unit

In the early days of radio in Australia, AWA, the Amalgamated Wireless Australia corporation, had a program to implement the "sealed unit" project where radio receivers could only receive the transmitting service to which they were licensed. Under this model, the Government would issue a licence to transmit on a given wavelength and oversee the manufacture of receivers locked on that wavelength. The owner of the transmitting licence could then charge the receiver's owner a recurrent fee that would be used to run the station. This was seen as preferable to the British situation where the Government backed a monopolistic service and collected a single licence fee from each household with a receiver. There appears to have been little attention at the time to a third possible model: that of the licensee charging for advertisements. Radio Amateurs were compelled to sign agreements that they would not carry out activities that would challenge this project. Under the legislation being drafted to implement this policy, it would be illegal for the consumer to do unauthorized tampering with the radio.
